…in all honesty our Suite Spotte suburban coworking community is blessed with a lot of winners. But this month we’re featuring one of the special ones, Shannon Lucas, a member of the RyTech digital marketing team, and a 2019 WSCCI Regional 30 Under 40 Award recipient.
You’re a digital marketing professional Shannon — why did you decide to follow that path?
I graduated from Loras College in 2013 with a degree in Business Management. Being in college as social media was really beginning to takeoff, I always knew it was going to play a huge role in my life….and here I am at RyTech, a full service digital marketing agency.
Tell us Shannon, what’s a typical day like for you at RyTech?
Most of my days are spent engaging with social media accounts online, reading up and keeping up-to-speed on the latest trends and tech features, and creating unique and innovative strategies for each of my clients, whether through social media or email.
What is your favorite thing about the work you do?
Hands down it’s collaborating with clients to grow their organizations, and then coming up with new ways to get the word out about all of the great work they’re doing in the community!
When you’re not working digital wizardry, what do you like to do?
I love spending time with my friends and family, attending Chicago Blackhawk and White Sox games (big fan!), and hanging with my Cockapoo puppy, Shep, who turns one the first week of June! Happy Birthday Shep!!
You were just awarded the West Suburban Chamber of Commerce Regional 30 Under 40 Award. Congrats! Who nominated you?
I was so proud to be nominated by a client, Barb Kartzmark with the Western Springs Park District, whom I have been working with for the past year! It was truly a surprise, and I’m really grateful to Barb for her support. It’s also quite the honor to represent RyTech within our local community.
What does it mean to you to be a Regional 30 Under 40 Award recipient?
This is my first professional award, so it really means a lot!! What even made it more special was that a client took time out of their busy day to nominate me for the Award. This has also set into motion my plan to be an EGOT Winner!
What are three words to best describe you and your work ethic?
Thanks for sharing a bit about yourself Shannon! If you’re looking to make your digital mark with high quality and consistency, our award-winning, Suite Spotter Shannon Lucas has what you need!
